Element Methods (FEM)
is a mathematical technique to simulate, inter
alia, stresses and strains, forces and deflections in a solid component
or assembly according to the field of Solid
. It is a means of solving the partial differential
equations by discetising the domain into finite sub-regions or elements.
has bought Plassotech’s
from MSC-Africa which is one such FEM package, to assist
in it solving structural related problems. It is a simple yet
powerful program that has bi-directional compatibility with the CAD
package. Designs can be optimised easily according to a number
of criteria and the search space can be viewed using a number of sliders.
The meshing is quick and the solver returns converged results promptly.
